Blustery winds outside the Grayslake Heritage Center and Museum blew the mellow sounds of the Bill Chapin Jazz X-tet to a socially distanced crowd Saturday.

The fifth annual MayFest, which featured the work of local artists in addition to music, was back in force this year.

 

"The most exciting thing is that we can provide a service and our artwork to more people, especially in person, and that we're doing it safely," said Paul Price, president of the Grayslake Arts Alliance.

Because of stringent COVID restrictions, last-year's event had to be held online.

The Grayslake Arts Alliance's signature event was held in its traditional location outside the Grayslake Heritage Center and Museum.

"It's so nice to engage with the community on a more personal level, something not over the computer or over the phone," said Price.
